Physical Description of Persona:
Mai has inherited the same small stature of her mother bringing her to about 5'3". She is slim and fit and very healthy. She has dark brown hair with a hint of red to it that makes her blue eyes stand out.

Emotional Description of Persona:
Mai is a very no-nonsense type of woman. She does not have a problem with stating exactly what's on her mind, and sometimes that can get her into a bit of trouble. She is quick to laugh and enjoy a good story-telling, and her easy-going nature is a plus - especially since most of her harper duties tend to have her instructing the children of the Weyr. She has come to enjoy teaching the children, though she often wonders if she might someday have some of her own, with her Weyrmate.

History of Persona:
Mai was born at Dream's End Weyr to the Weyrwoman. She grew up in much the same way as other children of higher ranking parents. When she reached the age of 12 turns, she began to show an interest in the Harper Craft. She began to take on more studies than just the normal everyday classes.

When she was 16 turns, she stood on the hatching sands. There was no dragonet who found her acceptable. And after that, she didn't try for Impression again. Instead, she focused on her Harper classes. At the age of 18 she walked the tables as a Journeywoman.

Recently, due to unforeseen - and pleasing circumstances - she finds herself transferring to River Bluff Weyr. The start of a new life is a challenge she is looking forward to.

She never looks back on her choice to only stand for one Hatching, instead believing she has other work to do, like teaching the children of other riders. Being the child of a Weyrwoman herself, she understands, and tries to keep then entertained, so there is less sneaking off. Today, she is living happily at River Bluff Weyr, with her Weyrmate, bronzerider and Wingsecond K'reyel. After some rocky times, she has grown to love him - and trust him - a great deal.

After some trials and a very dangerous pregnancy, Mai gave birth to K'reyel's son on m8d19 of turn 4, whom they named Mayel. After being warned severely that another child could kill her, they decided against trying again.

In month 13 of turn 7, K'reyel took a position as Wingsecond to the Weyrleader at Dragonsfall Weyr, and their small family moved again. It would be interesting to see how they all adjust to a new Weyr, a new home, new people, and new things.

Pets

Tero, Bronze Firelizard: aged 9, hatched m11 d12
Tero is a large bronze firelizard of a darkish shade. He spends most of his time with Mai, only leaving her alone when he needs to eat or if there's a green or gold in flight. Due to his size, he is surprisingly good at catching females in flight, much to Mai's occasional chagrin.
